Our Intern Program

A Statement from Aaron about Counseling Interns:

My aim is for Discover Counseling to provide effective counseling services with compassion and professionalism. When selecting interns, I look for someone who fits these expectations. This creates an excellent opportunity for you, the client, to work through your issues with an eager new counselor and pay a lower fee. My Pre-Master’s interns are Master’s degree candidates that are near the end of their education and just need real world experience to hone their skills. They are very knowledgeable and highly trained, so you can expect a high quality experience.

We take counseling very seriously because we know that your life, relationships, and well-being are on the line. As such, you can expect my interns to have regular weekly supervision with me, as well as regular meetings with their clinical supervisor at their graduate university program. I work closely with their university to ensure interns are maintaining best practices and ethical standards before signing off on every single hour.

Counseling interns are highly motivated to do their best work, and their supervisors (including myself) are motivated to ensure clients’ needs are being met at all times. This creates a great opportunity for you to benefit from the knowledge and experience of multiple professionals at a lower cost!
